3 nightsLA PAZ

A four-hour car journey takes you to your next stop, the artistic city of La Paz. You’ll spend three nights at Costa Baja, a luxurious resort overlooking the Sea of Cortez; exploration of the nearby coastline is high on the agenda during your stay here. A private day trip to the island of Espiritu Santo will see you heading into the Bay of La Paz to a sea lion colony, exploring deserted beaches and mangrove swamps, and kayaking off beautiful shorelines. Aspiring naturalists can swim with whale sharks on a ‘research day’, where you’ll learn about the creatures and efforts to protect them. If you’re more of a landlubber, opt for a day trip to the Sierra de la Laguna, a nature reserve home to thick forest perfect for hiking.

Todos Santos


A short hour’s drive sees you crossing the peninsula to your next stop, Todos Santos, where you’ll spend three nights at the arty design hotel, Guaycura. Todos Santos is home to some of the finest surfing in Baja California, whatever your ability level; it’s also a great place to learn, and expertly guided lessons are on offer. A great way to get to know the coastline up close is with a guided cliff-top walk, beginning in the fishing village of Punta Lobos. Your guide will take you to a sea lion colony and to the ruined fishing village of Los Algodones, teaching you all the while about the area’s rich flora and fauna. For a real off-the-beaten track adventure, a guided excursion will lead you to the deserts and canyons inland, before cooling off at three beautiful hidden waterfalls.

A range of water-based activities are on offer here, including jet skiing, parasailing, diving and kite surfing; for ultimate luxury, head out on a day’s private yacht tour. Alternatively, you can spend your last few nights exploring the buzzing nightlife of Cabo San Lucas, or simply relaxing around the pool or in the spa before your journey home.
